Corner view Le Menu
This weeks corner view was titled Le Menu what would you find on a typical menu in your city. Well, I live in America. The land of plenty and that also means unfortunately plenty of fast food restaurants. There are so many fast food restaurants in the average U.S. town that I am most positive you could probably go a couple of months eating out every night and not eat at the same restaurant twice. The good side of so many restaurants is that you have lots of variety the bad side is that with these fast food chains it is almost impossible for independent restaurants to operate. The other bad side is that Americans are growing fatter by the day. I am not immune to this side effect either. I try to stay away from fast food as much as possible. I am getting smarter though on what I pick on the menu's and looking for healthier options. One place I like to eat eat is called Panera Bread it features European style breads and pastries along with soup, sandwiches, and salads. My favorite is the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad a bed of mix greens dressed with roasted rosemary chicken, pecans, apple chips, blue cheese crumbles,tomatoes, with a white balsamic vinigerette. Another place I like to go is a place called Chipolte. What I like about this fast food restaurant is that the food is organic. The flavors are clean and simple. The product is fresh and while there are only 4 options the calories aren't going to set you back.
